My stamp space is in an unfinished basement. It isn't fancy but it is functional. I like to have my items within easy reach. No "out of sight" in my stamp room! Because for me that really is "out of mind". If I can't see it I forget about it. Even though most of my supplies are obviously in plain sight, I don't want my space to look cluttered or messy. I hold classes in my home each month and that would not work if the space was messy.
I am also a collector, which is just a nice way of saying I have A LOT of stuff! Like bordering on ridiculous quantities, but I digress. All of that means I need practical ways to deal with my abundance of supplies. You don't have to have a huge space (although mine is a pretty good size) or a pretty, finished space to craft. My space is a testament to that. What makes my room beautiful are the things I get to create, the people I get to visit with while we stamp together and the wonderfully fun times I have with my girls in there. I would one day love to have a pretty, finished room like the ones I see on line, meanwhile I'm going to keep making pretty things in mine.
This is the only finished wall in my basement. I mounted regular, inexpensive wooden curtain rods I purchased at WalMart on the wall. I believe this wall measures around 5' in length. It currently holds all of my punches, however as you can see it is entirely full. I will either have to cull my collection or add another rod. If I add a rod above I am not sure I will be able to reach it though! The butterflies have removable adhesive on the back and I have one for every color Stampin' Up! currently has, plus the previous set of In Colors. I add to it each year when the new colors are announced. It is just one of the ways I try to de-gloom my windowless basement space!
Another view. The small bars are Bygel rods from Ikea and the basket is as well. Those bars hold my smaller punches since they would fall through the curtain rods. The basket holds some of my edge punches and the tiny punches offered by Stampin' Up!. I also have my distressing tool in the basket. Hanging from the bottom are my brayer, the color coach, the retired distressing kit and a couple of piercing tools. Any retired punches are noted with small, orange dot stickers.
If you have any questions I will do my best to update the posts with answers.
Thanks for letting me share!
